Ubuntu, Suse, and Fedora Are Coming to Windows 10

During their Build 2017 keynote today, Microsoft announced they’re bringing Ubuntu, Suse, and Fedora to Windows 10 in the form of Windows apps published to the Windows Store. this means you’ll be able to install applications would normally run on these Linux-based operating systems directly on your current laptop without having to dual-boot OSes.

Microsoft’s goal with this move is to create the ultimate developing portal that will make Windows 10 “the only platform that can run both Windows apps and Linux apps side-by-side.” Last year at Build, Microsoft introduced Bash on Ubuntu for Windows which was met with great excitement from the community, according to the company. This is ultimately what encouraged Microsoft’s decision to simplify the installation process of Ubuntu on Windows 10, and I think we all feel grateful for the change.

Ubuntu for Windows 10 should be live in the Windows Store right now, although we’re not seeing it just yet on our end. That being said, Suse and Fedora should go live sometime in the future, except we can’t say exactly when this will happen.
